Materials and Set Up
Four strings, around 64 inches, which will be folded in half so you will have an 8 string bracelet.
Fold your strings in half, and use whichever method your heart desires to tie it at the top. :)
Set Up: 12344321, so they're mirrored, here I have used yellow, orange, green and purple.
Step by Step
Make four chevrons.
You need to make 1 more row of chevron
Now take the string on the far left (orange) and tie 2 forward knots onto the next two strings (green and purple)
Now on the far right side take your orange and tie 2 backward knots onto the next two strings (green and purple)
On the far left side of the bracelet, you want to take the green and make a f/bk knot over the purple.
Now you want to do the same on the right side of the bracelet. Take the green and make a bk/f knot over the purple.
Now back to the left hand side, take the orange and make 2 bk knots over the purple and green so it's back on the outside.
Now on the right side of the bracelet, take the orange and make 2 f knots over the purple and green.
Now go to the middle and take your yellow string and you want to make 2 f knots over the purple and green and a f/bk knot over the orange.
Back to the middle take the yellow and make 2 bk knots over the purple and green and a bk/f knot over the orange. Your strings should be in this order: O,Y,G,P,P
Step 12[p]To close it off you need to take the orange and make a chevron over the strings.
Repeat from step 3
